TLC's FRANCHISE ORIGINAL "90 DAY FIANCÉ" RETURNS FOR SEASON 5 WITH NEW COUPLES AND OUTRAGEOUS INTERNATIONAL LOVE STORIES
--The Hit Show that Started it all Will Premiere on October 8 at 9/8c --
(Los Angeles, CA) - Couples spread across the globe begin the tumultuous and challenging journey to the altar in the brand-new season of 90 DAY FIANCÉ premiering on Sunday, October 8th at 9/8c. The series will feature all new stories including a young Christian singer and her Spanish "prince charming," a mother determined to make it work with her Moroccan beau, an Arizona man hoping the third time is a charm with his Filipino fiancé and a Georgia woman love-struck by her Latin lover. These hopeful couples will take a chance on love and bring their potential spouses-to-be stateside. Using a special K-1 visa, they are required to get married at the end of only 90 days or else, by law, be forced to return to their home countries.
The couples featured are:
Elizabeth (Tampa, Florida) and Andrei (Chisinau, Moldova)
Elizabeth, 27, and Andrei, 31, met on a social app while she was looking for a local guide for her European vacation. The two chatted online, met up in person and their romance began soon thereafter. She is excited to bring Andrei to the U.S., but her father and brothers are skeptical that Andrei's conservative traditional views on gender roles will derail the relationship.
Evelyn (Claremont, New Hampshire), and David (Granada, Spain)
Evelyn, 18, and David, 27, met when he came across the aspiring singer's social media account and soon the two began messaging back and forth. Evelyn met David in person and was immediately captivated with his sweet nature and strong Christian values. The whirlwind fairy-tale romance could be in jeopardy because his desire to be in a bigger city, conflicts with her love of small-town life and close proximity to family.
Josh (Mesa, Arizona) and Aika (Quezon City, Philippines)
Josh, 43, and Aika, 36, met on a dating app and he was drawn to her profile despite being accidentally matched outside of his local search. A few months later after messaging with her, Josh flew to the Philippines to propose to Aika with an engagement ring and she said yes. Now Josh plans to bring his fiancé back to Arizona, where she will not only feel the heat from the desert sun but also Josh's skeptical friends.
Molly (Woodstock, Georgia) and Luis (Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic)
Molly, 41, and Luis, 26, met at a local bar where Luis bartends while she was on a girls' trip to the Dominican Republic and after less than two months, Luis proposed to Molly. Luis will have to endear himself to Molly's two daughters, 17-year old Olivia and 6-year old Kensley, although, a tougher challenge will be convincing Molly's stoic conservative father that Luis wants more than just a green card.
Nicole (Bradenton, Florida) and Azan (Taroudant, Morocco)
Nicole, 23, and Azan, 24 met for the first-time last season and now Nicole is heading back to Morocco and hopes that she can finally bring Azan back to America. This time she's not going alone; she is bringing along her 2-year old daughter May in hopes that Azan will prove to be the father figure May has never had and the partner that Nicole has always wanted. Nicole still needs to convince her skeptical father to co-sponsor the K-1 visa or lose Azan forever.
